Lovely aromas of violet, juniper and faint hints of rosemary emerge early on, to be joined by a nice underlay of wood spice and some juicy sour plum and wild blueberry tones with a streak of vanilla undertone. This is deliciously aromatic with a fine layering of fruit and forest aromas. This starts off on the palate with that wild blueberry note from the nose and just displays excellent cut and definition. The acidity is vibrant but well integrated and the tannins super-fine but present enough to lend this some firmness. The fruit is sapid and rich in the mouth, very deftly accented by the oak treatment, allowing the wild plum and slightly grapy/blackberry quality to linger on the moderately long finish. Really fresh, bright and juicy in the mouth. 91pts
